Ok, so I just took a look at a page on the Help Wikia detailing a certain function that would give us the capability to mark edits as "checked" for any vandalism, etc: [w:c:help:Help:Recent changes patrol|Recent Changes Patrol]. Currently, SmashWiki has this feature disabled by default, but I would like to request to have it activated. However, I'm not really sure if the rest of the community agrees. So, should we or should we not activate recent changes patrol, and what users can make use of this feature if we are to allow it? RAN1domchupunch!!! 04:13, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

It's an interesting idea, but I'm not entirely sure if we need it. Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png eXemplary Logic 15:09, November 14, 2009 (UTC)
Honestly, most of the vandalism we get is in the form of new pages (i.e. the canceling variety and/or lots of spam) or stupid uploads. If you think that this would help, make the case. But I do worry that it would put an undue expectation burden on some users. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 02:27, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
I personally have found patrol massively useless, having worked with it at GuildWiki for a while and still on GWW/GW2W. Shadowcrest 03:08, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
I don't think the wiki is actually big enough really. Any way, it takes a couple of seconds to check an article for vandalism so it isn't exactly a waste of time, just wasting another user's couple of seconds. Isn't needed. ☆The Solar Dragon (talk)☆ 06:25, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
